House OK's New Judge For Coweta District

The Georgia House passes a bill Monday that would bring an extra judge to the Coweta Judicial Circuit.
House bill 742 adds a seventh judge for the five-county Coweta Judicial Circuit, covering Carroll, Coweta, Heard, Troup and Meriwether counties.
The Coweta district has one of the highest caseloads of any circuit in the state.
Funding to pay for the new position was approved earlier in the 2015 budget passed by the house.
